A Birmingham man was left "flabbergasted" after a hospital told him he was pregnant - and could be expecting twins.

Hilton Plettell received a letter inviting him for a scan at the ante-natal department of Norfolk and Norwich University NHS Hospital, to find out how far pregnant he was.

Something here doesn’t add up. Isn’t age 50 kind of old for this guy to be getting pregnant?

Something about the private insurance companies not being able to compete with the efficiency and effectiveness of government health insurance?

Well, he is right. Just look at the USPS, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and a whole laundry list of other government programs. There's absolutely no way the private sector can compete with those.

Back in the 70s Joan Rivers directed a lame movie about a pregnant man. “Rabbit Test” starring Billy Crystal.

The blunder comes 20 years after Mr Plettell had treatment for kidney stones at the East Anglia hospital - where a senior nurse has now issued him an apology. She blamed a clerical error and promised to improve procedures in the future.

So it takes 20 years to communicate with a patient and then it's regarding the wrong diagnosis? Oh that's just great.

Under Obamacare, the second scan would not be covered, so he’d be expected to pay triple premiums from then on: for him and the expected twins.
